Looking for a fun experience at a great value?
Hickman County has about as much fun as can be had under the sun… not to mention the fun while the moon shines! Beautiful scenery, unique shopping and dining experiences, interesting history, unspoiled hunting and fishing areas — all offered with homespun hospitality.

Hickman County abounds with beautiful overlooks, cool waterfalls, fields and forests – home to wildlife and friendly folks. You can see a lot from your car, bus, motorcycle, boat, bicycle, hiking boots, or whatever your favorite vehicle is. The Natchez Trace Parkway passes through the county, Route 48 winds over hills and hollows, and Minnie Pearl Parkway offers a leisurely cruise. Your most stressful time may well be deciding where and what to eat – meat & three, country ham and biscuits, real pit barbecue, and a ‘baloney’ sandwich from a country store are just some of the choices. You’ll experience the history of the county that was once represented in the Tennessee legislature by Davy Crockett, where General Forrest’s troops once rode, where Thomas Edison personally prospected for cobalt, where Minnie Pearl was born, and where revenuers chased moonshiners through the night.

And for entertainment, musicians sing & play at cozy venues across the county or you can stay in your car and watch a movie at the old-fashioned Pink Cadillac Drive-in Theater.

So, take a few moments to check out what we have to see and do. If you’re just passing through or want to hang your hat for a day or two, Hickman County has heaps of hospitality waiting for you.
